Eulogy by Mary Lehman
Bart Davis had many circles of friends throughout his life. He has made many memories in the hearts and minds of all who remember him.
But life takes many turs in directions we don’t see, and Bart’s last 30 years were spent homeless in the Long Beach California area. 20 years of this time was sober.
Ten years into homeless he was diagnosed with Hep-C.
Living on the streets of Long Beach California surely requires some smarts and skills which Bart had. Toughing through dwellings in the Long Beach area, “The Jungle”, to in his last few years having a old-old Toyota drivable RV. Small, with no water or cooking and not in an RV Park, but good for him and his two life companions and protectors, Brandy and TJ, his loved Pit Bulls.
During the last eight years or so he worked at night cleaning a laundry mat. After that expired he got a job at a golf course as what they called an “ambassador”. This is how he was able to golf every day, even being homeless.
Bart was in love with the game of golf and was on the greens everyday most of his life. He loved hunting with his friends and fishing with many of the same friends. Bart had a beautiful, powerful singing voice. He loved music!! and dogs!!
Life was grand.
But the cancer returned. Scared and alone the good Lord let Bart rest. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.
